Praise for The E-Myth Attorney

"Twelve years ago I was introduced to the systems in this book by Robert Armstrong and Sanford Fisch. These visionaries transformed my estate planning practice and my life. Prior to meeting them and living the E-Myth Attorney life, I was an unhappy, struggling lawyer who wondered why I ever went to law school. I disliked the practice of law. The grind of it wasn't fulfilling personally or financially, but that changed forever. Thanks to the systems and ideas within these pages and the guidance of my mentors, Robert and Sandy, I am able to fully enjoy and thrive in my practice, helping people protect their families. That's why I went to law school. "
Cheryl K. David, Law Offices of Cheryl David

"This is a NOW read for attorneys. Gerber, Armstrong, and Fisch hit the mark by applying E-Myth principles to the legal profession. The attorney's unspoken fear is 'What happens if I'm not here?' This book is a road map for creating systems that make a business out of a practice, one that works for you, not you for it. My seventeen-year association with Robert and Sandy created a breakthrough experience for my practice, my family, and my life. Live and apply these principles and watch what happens to your practice . . . and your life."
Larry V. Parman, Parman & Easterday

"Between Michael Gerber's wisdom of 'systems' and Robert and Sandy's keen insight gained from coaching law firms around the country, this terrific book is transformational reading for anyone who wants to improve their law practice—and their life!"
Paul A. Kraft, Frank & Kraft, A Professional Corporation, Attorneys at Law

"It is often said that there is more to the practice of law than being a good attorney. An abundance of knowledge and technical proficiency mean little if an attorney/owner lacks the ability to lead his associates, his staff, and his clients. It means little if the attorney/owner lacks the ability to manage the equalizer that favors none, which is time. If what you seek is a better, more balanced life, derived from an enlightened way to transform your law practice into a successful business that delivers quality legal services, and which is then transformed further into a successful enterprise that functions smoothly in your absence, then you should read and heed the pearls of wisdom contained in The E-Myth Attorney. If you care not, then you will be doomed to repeat the failures of so many who came before you."
Stephen A. Mendel, The Mendel Law Firm, LP
